Introduce various perspectives of the civil rights movement to your middle schoolers by having them take on roles in groups. They read a projected excerpt describing a house (linked) from either the perspective of a real estate agent or a burglar, memorizing relevant facts about it without taking notes. After the text is removed, groups make lists of pertinent facts. They compare the notes and try to figure out which point of view the other group had. Would the lists be different from another perspective? Pairs read Rosa Parks' "I Was Not Alone" and make inferences noting perspective.
